Katie Griffith’s goal is to become the first female professional baseball pitcherShe was living in Manhattan Beach and working as head softball coach for Harvard-Westlake School, a well-regarded private school in Studio City. She’d moved to California seven years earlier from her native Georgia, where she’d been a Division I collegiate softball pitcher at the University of Georgia. At 31, she figured her playing days were behind her.
The Manhattan Beach Board of Education last month received a look at early designs for the new Mira Costa athletic facility, a proposed 70,500 sq. ft. building that will replace the aging Fisher Gym and provide the campus and the community with a new focal point. The $39 million building, funded through the passage of bond Measure EE last fall, is intended to be a state-of-the-art training facility and a large pavilion with a 2,500-person seating capacity for student gatherings and games.
There’s a scene in The Big Sick, when the lead character, Kumail, gets in an argument with his Pakistani Muslim immigrant family, at a diner. As things get heated he takes a moment to swivel his head around, repeatedly shouting to other customers, “It’s okay, we hate terrorists! We hate terrorists!”So yeah, The Big Sick may just be too good for this world, too pure.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
